It is a lot harder to get a false positive… I would take another in a few days to make sure because it is really soon. Not impossible though so good luck =)

i’ve heard that any line, no matter how light, is positive and that false positives are unlikely. wait a few days and try again. the more of the preggo hormone in your body, the quicker and darker the line appears.

if you’re going to buy another one, get a digitial “pregnant” “not pregnant” one – much easier than trying to decipher the lines.

false positives are almost unheard of. was it your 1st pee of the morning? it may not have been very concentrated urine, maybe that’s why it was so faint. most ppl would tell you to wait a few days for HCG to go up, but i wouldn’t be patient enough to do that if i were you! i’d do another one in the morning. hope it is positive! that would be great if you and your Darling Husband got preg that 1st month. baby dust to you!

good luck! I’ve also heard false positives are much more rare, though not entirely impossible (winning the lottery is rare, but a few lucky individuals manage to! lol) Sounds like a good sign though 🙂

If you can’t wait until tomorrow morning, please make sure you do not drink a ton of water in one sitting to build up any urine to test. All this does actually is dilutes it more and you could actually get a false negative. Try to have a few hr span to give it some time. I second the digital tests…I hate reading lines, but I heard even a faint line is good!

@spraguebride: Yeah…it’ll be even less strong in the next test.  Waiting till tomorrow morning will give you a better result since it’s still early.  Good luck!

False positives can happen! But from my experience, when I was pregnant, there was no question about it, I knew that it was a positive. Let us know the new test turns out! Goodluck!

The more hormone present, the darker the line.  If you are early on or your urine was especially dilute, it would be more faint.  You can see a faint outline if you let the test sit their for a long time even if you’re not pregnant due to a certain amount of the latex that makes the color up non-specifically sticking to the + line.  If you were seeing a faint + at or before the recommended time limit, like almost as soon as the area got wet, it’s more likely to be real.

NO FALSE POSITIVES! The only thing a pregnancy test measures is human growth hormone which is ONLY present when you are pregnant. So it can miss the hormone if there’s a small amount, which would result in a false negative, but if it picks any up resulting in a positive, you are pregnant!

A false positive isn’t likely!   I think it’s safe to say you can get your hopes up!!!! Take another test in the morning (first thing) and then celebrate with your hubby!
